Patient Information

What is a Periodontist?

A Periodontist is a highly skilled dental specialist trained to diagnose and treat diseases that affect the gums and the underlying jawbone. Periodontists routinely perform surgical procedures to manage gum disease, receding gums, and defects in the bone around teeth and dental implants. They also have expertise in the placement of dental implants and bone augmentation procedures.

What specialized training does a Periodontist receive?

A Periodontist must graduate from an accredited dental school before undertaking an additional three years of study within a Periodontology residency training program. The focus of periodontal training  is surgical and non-surgical management of periodontal diseases, and the placement of dental implants.

In addition, Dr. Bender completed an extra year of training at Mount Sinai Hospital’s residency program, which gave him invaluable experience in managing patients with complex medical conditions.
